Them Crooked Vultures – Dead End Friends (From their self-titled debut album, 2009 Interscope)  If ever there was a “rock super-group” that covered a few generations of music, it would be these guys. Comprised of Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) on guitar/vocals, the legendary John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) on bass guitar, and some guy named Dave Grohl (he’s been in a few bands here and there) on drums, you get a fully charged rock ‘n roll band that knows their business. Jones was part of one of the most influential bands of ever with Led Zeppelin. Their mark on music is undeniable. Dave Grohl is an amazing front-man with the Foo Fighters, one hell of a drummer, and during the early nineties his old band Nirvana (you may know them) was the voice of a musical revolution. Joshua Homme is the catalyst and leader of QOTSA, in my honest opinion, the most important band in modern rock. Throw that in a pot and mix it up. Tastes good. Hopefully in the future we will get a second helping of Them Crooked Vultures. Dead End Friends is my favorite song on the album, very catchy, and great for listening to while going for a highway drive.

Cool fact – This band is too cool for facts. That’s a fact.
